Ideas and Thoughts
Cyanobacteria thrives in situations of high phosphates
High Nitrates = Need fast growing plants
Increasing KH will increase pH (the two are directly linked)
Tap water KH is 4 (<1 for tank)

GOALS
1. Nitrates <50ppm (Current >160ppm)
2. Destroy All Cyanobaterica
3. Fish rock!
- Phosphates come from fish waste, excess food.
- Eliminate algae is to let the plants out-compete the algae for the nutrients.
- Heavily planted tanks, algae will often show up when the plants have used up all NO3s
- Plant growth to slow / stop, which leaves the excess phosphates available to the algae.
- Supplying extra nitrate to a planted tank, we allow plant growth to continue until all phosphate is consumed.
- Then plant AND algae growth will slow/stop.
As long as a usable (5-10ppm) level of nitrate is maintained
- the plants will continue to use up the available phosphate, and effectively controls phosphorus-dependant algae.
